Pray for our kids!!

As we enter another brand new school year, I am reminded of the responsibility that we have as parents and church leaders: to pray regularly for our kids as they enter the battlefield called public school. I am taking nothing away from those who may be homeschooled or in Christian schools, but the public school where most of our children attend is where the toughest battles are fought. These are battles for the minds and hearts of our children. I

The Greatness of God

“Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.” Psalm 145:3, NIV Ever wonder how big God is?  Truly no one can fathom.  When you think about our planet you may think about things like the beautiful rolling hills and valleys, the vast number of creatures that exist on our planet, or the wonders of the deep blue seas.  Truly our planet is huge and great in itself, yet it’s much smaller that our

U-Turns Allowed

‘Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin…. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. Then I will

A Heart To Serve

One of the best things you can do as a parent is encourage your children to serve. From a young age, look for opportunities where they can do something selfless for others. Lots of research has been done, but very few scientists would say that humans tend toward selfish behavior naturally. The same is true regarding selflessness. While humans may tend toward doing whatever is necessary to ensure survival, how a person gives of them self is learned through relationships.

Freedom Isn’t Free

As I contemplate this Independence Day holiday, I am reminded of the cost of the freedom we enjoy here in the United States. Our freedom to celebrate today is a direct result of the sacrifices of so many over the last 243 years since the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Today let us not only remember the sacrifices of the just over 1 million who have died for the cause of freedom. Let us also remember and celebrate our

REMEMBER

Remember Title

If you can’t watch the video right now… Read this! I was driving past Beech High School earlier this week and I was prompted to create this video. I was thinking about all of the great memories I have (as well as some of the not-so-great memories) and, looking back, it’s so easy to see where God was in each of those situations. I can see how he shaped me and how he guided me through those years and made

Set a Reminder for Your Spirit

As my eyes opened this morning, I thought back to the incredible experience we had at Camp Jackson. Today marks a week since our last day of camp and I still found myself following a new ritual I adopted since coming home. Think back to the last time you lost your voice. I mean really lost it. There’s always that initial moment, when you first wake up, where you aren’t sure if your voice has improved throughout the night; you

Fear God and Fear Not

Fear Not

Last night in Bible Study, we walked through Psalm 34 and talked about whether or not a Christian should fear. One of the common responses was there are different kinds of fear. There’s both a healthy fear and an unhealthy fear. Reverent Fear-is a healthy fear and is what is being referred to when the Bible refers to the fear of the Lord. This is a fear that we should all have, but not all do. Jeremiah 5:22 (NIV) tells
